The China Guide, a western managed Beijing-based travel company, has a new group tour available for the 2010 travel season. Their new group tour will run every Tuesday from April through November 2010. The tour is a great budget option for travelers of all ages looking to discover the history of Beijing as well as experience the culture hands-on. The China Guide’s (http://www.TheChinaGuide.com ) new itinerary includes 5 nights of accommodation and 4 full tour days, with an overnight stay on the Great Wall, an unforgettable experience for travelers.
Avoiding the standard tour pattern, The China Guide’s group itinerary includes sights and activities that other companies don’t offer. “We always take our guests to Beijing’s famous monuments and historical sights, but we also want them to experience something special and out of the ordinary,” says Peter Danford, owner and operator of The China Guide. The group tour highlights include lunch in a traditional family home in Beijing’s historical hutong district. Guests will enjoy local dishes and also have the chance to practice dumpling making with the family host. Guests will also have the opportunity to visit the famous Panjiayuan weekend market and see an evening Chinese acrobatic show. The most unique aspect of The China Guide’s group tour is the overnight stay on the Great Wall. Guests have the option to stay in a courtyard hotel at the base of the Wall or sleep on the Wall under the stars waking up to the beautiful sunrise.
The group tour will run weekly, providing travelers with flexibility to match their holiday plans. Group size will be kept to a maximum of fifteen guests so everyone can have an intimate feeling on the tour and have opportunities to interact with the local guide. The tour is a great budget options for travelers, costing US$ 555 per person. The price is all-inclusive with transportation, local guide, accommodation, meals and all entrance tickets.
“We wanted to develop a new budget option for travelers while still offering our high quality, American standard service. Our new group itinerary is the perfect solution. Joining together with other travelers keeps the costs lower, yet still allows everyone to receive our unique quality service that we have been offering for many years,” adds Danford.
